As of this writing there are a lot of filmmakers who want to be on Netflix. Unfortunately - also at this moment - Netflix is on of the most challenging of the digital movie distribution options to get on. First off, you need to have a film that can compete with others on this venue.
And secondly, even if you get on Netflix, unless you are on heavy rotation within the service, chances are very few people will see your movie anyway.
The good news is that there is a popular digital movie distribution option that is easier to get on.
We are talking of course about Amazon Video. In our third installment of “How to Sell a Movie” on the Art Gush Online Education website, we discuss Amazon Video and how to upload your film onto that service.
Of course, just being on that digital distribution platform is not nearly enough. You have to have a kick ass web marketing campaign in place to ensure that folks purchase views.
Thankfully, creating an effective digital promotion campaign is possible. Though, especially if you don’t have much of a budget, you need to know what you’re doing.
Art Gush methodologies were developed just for that purpose: cost effective digital promotion techniques – and we’re not necessarily speaking about social media.
What is Lights Camera Read? It is an educational nonprofit sponsored organization that has the mission to help introvert artists of all kinds (actors, writers, musicians, filmmakers and so forth) go from being “starving artists” to artist entrepreneurs via programs online and off including “Platinum Pias,” “Artist Introvert Revolution,” “Thrillumentary” “Art Gush” and an alliance of blogs.
We believe that introvert artists can make a difference in NYC and internationally if they receive empowerment. The empowerment that Lights Camera Read provides is that of methodologies. Step by step approaches to tasks that normally would require an extrovert orientation. Activities include making films and promoting one’s self and one’s art.
At Lights Camera Read we strive to make the solutions we offer for introvert artists without the “extroversion required” road blocks that introvert artists normally experience. We hope for a world where introvert and extrovert artists can work together in harmony.
